August has pretty much started off similar to July, with lots of redfish and plenty of spanish mackerel. Mixed in are ladyfish and some bluefish. The trout bite has been so-so the past few weeks, here's a tip, slow your baits down similar to winter time patterns. If you are seriouis about catching trout try fishing at night around the dock lights or the last two hours of day light.
August is still a hot month as is Septemeber and it's not until October when the fish start to make their migration up river and out of the lower areas. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be working the same areas for reds, and targeting Spanish some with some speck fishing mixed in. The speck fishing like I said is ok, but it won’t really get good until October when the water starts to cool off.
Don’t forget, if you’re heading down this way for November and December, the annual fall/winter red fishing will be in full swing. And let me tell you, if you want to hook up with a trophy redfish, then this is the time to visit Pensacola.
Till the next adventure, tight lines.
